New Alpine A120 Teaser Contains Lots Of Drifting, Premiere Edition Officially Announced

As the unveiling date for Alpine’s first car, allegedly named A120, is fast approaching, Renault’s revived brand has started the teasing game.

In an official video released on Alpine’s YouTube channel, three prototypes are being shown on the wet asphalt, getting tail-happy thanks to their rear-wheel drive, mid-engine architecture.

Alpine has also announced on their website, an initial limited-production run of 1,955 units that will carry the Premiere Edition suffix. These will be delivered next year in 12 European countries – Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland, with the UK and Japan following from 2018.

The automaker has yet to release an official press release, but the initial info reveals three body colors for the limited edition A120 – Bleu Alpine, Noir Profond, and Blanc Solaire, a 0-100km/h (0-62mph) in 4.5 seconds and a starting price of €55,000-€60,000 (~$59,000-64,000) in France, tax included.

Alpine has already started taking reservations for the Premiere Edition, asking a €2,000 (~$2,150) deposit to secure one of the first cars, and to do so, one needs to download a bespoke app, which is compatible with Android and iOS devices.
